Mexican cuisine with vegetarian seitan mince

If Mexican cuisine is anything, it’s extraordinarily colourful! The Mexican culinary culture stretches back thousands of years and is a melange of local ingredients with Spanish and other European influences. The cumin, bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic give this dish of vegetarian seitan mince it’s Mexican flavour. Have you ever tried Bertyn seitan mince? It is a high-quality mince made of wheat and is the perfect low-carb meat substitute!

Add cooked kidney beans or corn to the Mexican stew. Now we’re really talking Mexican!

Chef Chantal Voets also has handy advice; the coriander used in this recipe is actually a traditional Asian herb that is extraordinarily aromatic in both scent and taste. Coriander is the perfect companion.

What fans say about Bertyn

Miki Duerinck & Kristin Leybaert

cooks of the vegetarian cookery studio and authors of 4 vegetarian cooking books, Ghent

“Even if we never manage to convert the world to the vast majority of meat replacements, one product remains decidedly hopeful: the Manitoba wheat and soy sauce-based, traditionally produced seitan manufactured by Bertyn. It brings together the two qualities required if you justifiably want to call a product a ‘meat replacement’: it is pure and natural and very tasty. It is on sale in health food shops, vacuum packed as seitan steak, seitan supreme or in ‘block form’. It is easy to prepare: the seitan is baked, steamed or cooked in a flash because it never requires lengthy cooking times. So from now on no restaurant has a valid excuse for not putting such a vegetarian dish on the menu.”
